Guilford Hometown Holidays

Events begin at 5pm at the Guilford Historical Society Museum with free hot cocoa and sweets. Santa’s helpers will be there, and children can help to make reindeer food! There will also be Guilford memorabilia for sale; these make great Christmas gifts! At 6pm, Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive by fire truck to help the children light up the town Christmas tree. All are invited to join in at the annual Christmas bonfire for more caroling. Families are also encouraged to stop at Davis Brother’s Furniture, winner of 2015 and 2016 Hometown Holidays Traveling Trophy for their breathtaking displays. For more information on Town of Guilford holiday events, contact Guilford Historical Society at 207-217-0963.

On Friday, Dec 6th, from 7-9pm and Sunday, the 8th from 2-4pm, the Guilford Bed & Breakfast will hold Holiday Tea and Carols with acapella trio Born to Praise. Tickets are $5 each if purchased before Dec 5th and $10 thereafter; available at or by calling 207-876-3477.

On Saturday the 7th, The Guilford Bed & Breakfast is opening their doors for their Spirit of St. Nick event from 5-7pm, where folks can come in from the cold to treat themselves to cheery, holiday elegance. Folks are invited to stop by and enjoy a fine cup of traditional, Victorian Wassail while enjoying Christmas music in front of a warm, crackling fire. Ask for a private tour and your host will be happy to oblige. Look out for the mistletoe, though, as the kissing tradition is strongly encouraged at this event! Come and share your best holiday memories and pass along “goodwill to all”, as Dickens would say. For ages twelve and over.
